UCDSU extend SU election nomination window amid technical issue

UCD Students’ Union have decided to extend the deadline for nomination to a role to Friday March 11th at 5pm.

This decision comes after a technical issue with the nomination form for the Irish Language Officer role, where the form required a “permission request” according to UCDSU President Ruairí Power. 

In their attempts to ensure “fairness” all of the roles’ nominations have been reopened for the next week. With regard to the sabbatical officers race, currently only two out of six roles are said to be contested. As of publication, Campaigns and Engafement and Education are believed to have two  candidates each. 

Nominations were due to close at 5pm tomorrow, but now any students who were considering running for an executive officer role will have an extra week to gather signatures ahead of voting on March 30th.
